The Ungrateful

1 10-6 1

 

Verse of the Day:   Luke 6:35

But love your enemies, do good to them, and lend to them without expecting to get anything back.  Then your reward will be great, and you will be sons of the Most High, because He is kind to the ungrateful and wicked.

 

God commands us to love our enemies, even the ungrateful.  For some this may be harder than others, but if we are grounded in God’s love and mercy, we can move past the human nature and into the spiritual characteristic of Christ.    Our heavenly Father has shown us great mercy and expects us to be kind to those who are ungrateful and wicked, not because they deserve it, but because we are striving to live a life that pleases Him.

Choose Your Words Wisely

1 9-20 1

 

Verse of the Day:  Proverbs 25:11

Like apples of gold in settings of silver is a word spoken in right circumstances.

 

How do your words affect those around you?  Do your words build people up or tear them down? More importantly, do they reflect the love of God? Choose your words wisely in all circumstances.

Humility is Strength

1 Ephesians 4 2

 

Verse of the Day:  Ephesians 4:2

Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love.

 

Live a less self-centered life by focusing more on God and by being kind to others.  Humility doesn’t mean being weak, it’s actually the opposite.  It’s being so strong in your faith that you are obedient to God’s Word no matter the circumstances.

Do It with Love

1 proverbs 31 20

 

Verse of the Day:   Proverbs 31:20

She opens her arms to the poor and extends her hands to the needy.

 

As Godly women who love the Lord it should be our mission to help the poor and needy.  That doesn’t mean we all have to do extraordinary things.  Sometimes it’s simply a kind word or a sincere gesture.  Each of us should do what God puts in our hearts and do it with love.

Be Kind and Generous

123

Proverbs 11:25

Verse of the Day:   Proverbs 11:25

A generous man will prosper; he who refreshes others will himself be refreshed.

 

Be kind and generous to others because God has been kind and Generous to you.   God will always make sure you are taken care of when you are generous to the poor.  Trust in God’s promises and help those in need.

Share the Love

1 john 4 11

1 John 4:11

Verse of the Day:   1 John 4:11

Dear friends, since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another.

 

God’s love flows to us and it needs to flow through us.  When we receive God’s love it changes us so much that we feel the need to share it by loving one another.  When we share it with others they are able to receive love not only from us but directly from God.  God’s love is meant to be shared.

The Words of My Mouth

1 psalms 19 14

Psalms 19:14

Verse of the Day:   Psalms 19:14

May these words of my mouth and this meditation of my heart be pleasing in your sight, Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer.

 

I want my words and thoughts to be pleasing to God in all circumstances.  Not only when I pray or think about godly things but also in my everyday conversations and thoughts.  I want to fill my mind and heart with positivity so there will be no room for negativity.
